Food and service were excellent. We had eaten at Blue Moon a long time ago and have been wanting to go back. So glad we did. Great food, great memories.

Went on a Sunday for lunch but was not aware that they don’t use their regular menu - huge brunch - if you are able to eat lots, it would be excellent. However we went because of their everyday menu. Perhaps Open Table might have something to alert us when a restaurant is not serving their regular menu

Service was exceptionally slow, all of our entrees were served cold. Waiter never came by to ask how the food was, so no opportunity to send back the entrees to be rewarmed. Wine list is very limited. I’d expect more from a venue whose entree prices are $35-50

Upscale ambiance and excellent service. The menu was pricey no doubt they have different menus depending on the seating. The room with a clear view of the water way seemed like it had higher menu prices. No complaints though, we got what we paid form.

My wife & I always enjoy dining at Blue Moon. This occasion was for her birthday. Our food was excellent. My filet mignon was one of the best that I've ever had. Perfect! My wife was very pleased with her seafood dinner. Our server, David, was very friendly & attentive. Although the ambience was a bit loud in the inside dining area, it was a very enjoyable dining experience. Highly recommended!

 (New England)·Dined 5 days ago

Never wrote a negative review . My husband and I were taking out 2 cousins one of which has Stage 4 cancer and has a birthday coming up. We are from New England and have eaten in countless fish restaurants. Both my husband and I ordered our fish plain with some simple herbs on top. In addition, I ordered the spinach sautéed with a bit of olive oil and nothing else .
The food was not eatable. My fish tasted as though it had a layer of salt on it and the spinach was a lump of something with loads of salt. I ate a bite and left everything else in the plate. My husband and I didn't want to complain and take any joy out of the birthday celebration. A manager came over to ask how the food was...I explained very quietly...he offered to redo it but by that time everyone was ready to go...the waiter saw I ate nothing yet said nothing. The bill was over $200 ! I would not recommend this restaurant if ( because of dietary restrictions ) you needed to make any changes.

We booked for our anniversary and it was new year's also but we had no information about this being a set menu with a set price of $145/person and we were VERY disappointed not having access to the normal menu.
It seems like this information should be announced before you book a table. We felt trapped...
The location however is very pleasant right on the inter coastal.

Food always on point. Gumbo is delicious. Omelette station is healthy and delicious. All the food is always on target. Never a bad experience. The head Chef always remembers us and comes to the table to make sure our experience is what is expected. And it always is. Service is amazing. Water glass never empty. Drink glass always full. There is always space to park my boat. I am a customer for life.

On vacation and absolutely loved everything about Blue Moon. The whole snapper is one of my absolute favorites, my daughter had the Tuna and said it was fresh and amazing, my husband had the grouper- full flavor highly recommend. The waiter, servers, and ambiance were just perfect!

Only complaint was risotto was not warm served with fish dish. Sent it back and they just microwaved it and the seafood in it became rubbery. They didn’t even offer to do again when we let them know. Just said they would let chef know. Other than that the meal was overall very good. The Chilean sea bass was divine.

We enjoyed a very nice meal with friends visiting from London. The food and service were good. The prices are a little high and it can be rather hard to have a conversation. Overall I would recommend Blue Moon for good fresh fish if price is not an issue and you are not looking for a quiet romantic night out.

Though we do not live near the Blue Moon we do choose to frequent this restaurant as the service and food are always first class, so always worth the drive. We found the staff on Christmas Day better than other occasions but that does not mean they are not always great , just the waiter we had was special,...
We and our friends will always be back for this special restaurant.

First visit on Christmas Eve 2017. Reservation for two made several weeks in advance. Seated promptly at a table on the water—view was great. Service was friendly but a little off, perhaps due to the holiday craziness. Waiter needed to be reminded twice to bring the excellent bread basket. Menu was as depicted on website. Conch hush puppies and seared tuna appys were very good as were the scallops and salmon entrees. Key lime pie was great. Dinner was $150 without any alcohol, including tax and tip. Worth it for the view one supposes, but not if seated at a table inside the character-less dining room.
